The call to adventure and new worlds are for those who desire to be transported to faraway lands, creating a life filled with personal stories of adventures and lessons.

The world has become obsessed with pink hues, and architecture is no exception. Though hugely successful in fashion and pop-culture (and Instagram), "Millennial Pink" has established a presence across design products and the built environment like never before.
The month of July may be most associated with the colors red, white and blue, but we see no end in sight for the color trend best known as "Millennial Pink." Which is why July’s color of the month is Rosy Cloud (DE5182).
June’s color of the month is Lazy Daisy (DET491).
With a happy, creative energy and infusions of heritage design, we celebrate the simple joys in life. Our trend story, Childhood Joys, is inspired by the simplicity of Scandinavian design with a Bauhaus spirit, a nod to heritage with a refreshed, modernist view of Mid-century design.
Pink, in all it glorious ranges, continues its dominance in color trends. Within the range of popular pinks is a hue that many have started calling “Millennial Pink,” a gender-neutral range of shades — from beige with blush touches, to a hybrid peachy-salmon color.
As we look forward to trends for next year, we recognize the continuing pursuit of individualism, living an inventive and genuine life and, of course, following our dreams.
